Sri Lanka’s forest coverage has depleted drastically from 53% to 29% in the last two decades creating many environmental complications as well as hindering the chance for future generations from enjoying the comfort of trees. Rotary Sri Lanka & Maldives together with the lead club RC Ibbagamuwa has embarked on an ambitious project to plant a million trees.
I am delighted to inform you that adequate saplings are currently available for immediate planting within a special geographical area in Kurunegala allocated for this purpose. Research finds every human being is emotionally attached to a tree at some point in their lives either during childhood, at school or at their workplace. Hence the theme “One Million Tree Stories” was conceived.
